Job description

About the Role:

SESCO Enterprises, LLC is a proprietary energy trading firm. SESCO’s primary focus is developing a dynamic approach to simulating the physical state of the US electrical grid while modeling the stochastic features that drive market prices and outcomes. This requires a research-oriented approach to portfolio optimization and risk management. SESCO demands a culture of innovation oriented toward systematizing the decision-making process and converting ideas and principles into models eliminating opportunities for error. Innovation and process improvement is necessarily executed in a highly iterative and collaborative manner with continuous feedback as we strive to optimize results. SESCO offers individuals as much responsibility as they can manage and compensates them accordingly.

We are seeking an experienced meteorologist with expertise in both short- and long-range forecasting. In this role, you will utilize meteorological tools, models, and data to provide daily, weekly, and long-term weather forecasts that impact our energy trading operations. You will collaborate with cross-functional teams, including traders, analysts, and data scientists, to incorporate weather-related factors into decision-making. The ideal candidate will possess exceptional time management skills, strong quantitative skills, and the ability to thrive in a high-stress environment.

  • 2+ years of forecasting experience (both short & long range).
  • Experience with data processing using programming languages and relational databases (Python, R, SQL, etc.). 
  • Experience using the output of numerical weather models.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and the ability to think critically and analytically.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, with the ability to convey complex meteorological information to non-experts.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
  • A natural curiosity about energy markets and the ability to develop forecasts that may be contrary to the consensus.
  • Experience in the power markets is preferred but not required.


  • Develop 24-to-48-hour forecasts for cities in SPP, MISO and PJM, focusing on temperatures, cloud cover, and precipitation. 
  • Create wind and solar power forecast curves for farms within the above ISOs.
  • Present your forecast to the traders, each morning, in a concise, simple format focusing on the risk and opportunities. 
  • Help develop new tools and applications that improve the forecasting preparation and production efficiency.
  • Monitor available weather data to create mid and long-range predictions for areas east of the Rockies.

Additional Notes:

  • Must be able to work weekends and holidays, this includes Christmas and Thanksgiving.
